Bollyglow

You just got asked out on a date. What do you do? Get into panic mode because you like this guy and you’ll do whatever it takes to impress him. Right?! The first thing that comes to your mind is what I should wear and the make-up that must follow. You’ll feel the butterflies in your stomach and the anticipation will almost kill you when you are getting ready. In the quest to impress him, you’d want to try all sorts of things, right from a new hairdo, lippie or liner style to the outfit and shoes. But, what’s the actual key to a fabulous date, you’ll find below.
It’s true that if you look good you’ll feel great about yourself which is important, hence we are here to guide you through nailing a flawless date look.
Find below six beauty tips on how to prep for your date night:

1. Before taking a shower…
…pamper yourself by applying a face mask that’s meant to moisturise your skin completely. Relax for 10-15 minutes and enjoy a mini spa-day at home. Your date deserves to see your most refreshed self! (See our https://www.bollyglow.com/collections/skin/products/bollyglow-moisturising-bamboo-sheet-face-mask)

2. Create eyes that flatter
Your eyes must be the main highlight; one look and your date should be flattered. Use a high-curl mascara and then apply a set of effortlessly chic false eyelashes (See our https://www.bollyglow.com/collections/eyelash/products/bollyglow-goa-vibes-3d-faux-extra-curl-mink-lashes) to give your eyes a beautiful lift in the most subtle way. You don’t want to overdo it! Next, sweep the thinnest line with a precision pen eyeliner in black for eyes that speak louder than words. (See our https://www.bollyglow.com/collections/eyelash/products/precision-pen-eyeliner-film-noir).

3. It’s all about the base…face
Make sure your foundation is good because your makeup follows afterwards. Cleanse, moisturize and conceal to ensure an ethereal, glowing face for your date night look. Remember to use an oil-free moisturizer to avoid pasty skin.
4. Keep it natural…
…because a natural look is something your man will appreciate. FYI, too much make-up is considered to be the biggest turn off for men, but if you love heavy make-up then it shouldn’t matter. It’s all about just being “you”. Focus on highlighting your best features.
5. Let your lips do the talking…kissing
Use a lip balm that gently plums and deeply nourishes your lips. Carry one in your handbag to avoid chapped lips at all times, especially date nights. Later, dress your lips with a light sheen (gloss) liquid lipstick (See https://www.bollyglow.com/collections/frontpage/products/bollyglow-goan-sunset-metallic-waterproof-liquid-lipstick). Don’t go overboard with the gloss, sticky lips are a big NO! NO! for men. All you got to do is flash a lovely smile and have a great time.

6. Be real, be unique, be YOU!
Whichever beauty routine you decide to opt for-winged eyeliner, smoky eyes, matte look, or glitter, just make sure it’s what you love and it depicts who you truly are. Most importantly, you have to be comfortable and relaxed in front of your date. Do not pretend to be someone else, because that isn’t going to help in the long run. It’s alright to enhance your looks, just don’t try to imitate someone else because you think he just might like you more. Bad idea girls! Keep it real, keep it simple and leave the drama behind, that’s the trick.
Lastly, don’t try too hard to get his attention. Look your best and just be yourself—he’ll love you for who you are.
Go ahead, sweep him off his feet like a GLOWboss!

#SKINCARE ROUTINE FIRST, IT’S SUMMER TIME!

Summer is here!!! As we jump right into a bright new season, let your spirits soar high. High up! Go ahead, gather your summer starter pack—a swimsuit, pool sliders, sunnies and whatever beach accessories you need to hit the beach, pool, lake or any water body that will help you beat the balmy weather. But, wait. Before you think of soaking up the sun, make sure your skin is cared for. Apart from the fun, summer kick starts a whole set of skin issues like sun tan, itchy skin, breakouts and the list continues… Not if skincare comes first beauties. Staying hidden from the sun and missing out on all the outdoor fun sounds boring and let’s put it this way, it’s not an option!
We sincerely don’t want you to miss out on all the fun and hence have enlisted six tips you can incorporate to keep your skin healthy and protected.
Get your best summer skin, take a look!

Exfoliation Is Key
Face the issue of sun tanning during summers? Fret not, put exfoliation into practise! It helps remove dead skin cells that damage your skin texture, reduces dullness and removes dirt as a result of excessive sweat. After you wake up in the morning, start by exfoliating your skin and then your toning, moisturising, sunscreen and make-up application follows. Go ahead, exfoliate for a clearer and brighter skin this summer.
Live, Laugh, Wear Sunscreen
You’ve heard or maybe read this a million times, but we will still remind you that application of sunscreen with a minimum of SPF 15 is a MUST. Period! And not just in summer, but all year round. Summer especially because sunscreen helps block the sun’s harmful UVA and UVB rays which are the known factors of many skin diseases. Hence, before leaving home, remember to slather on sunscreen and after every 2-3 hours. If you have not used one, start today. It’s never too late ladies..
Be Amazing, But First Moisturise!
This step is important, trust us. The harsh sun’s rays tends to deplete the skin’s moisture levels and to retain it, moisturising helps. Many creams are available off the counter, but make sure to buy one with a higher SPF level. Moisturise twice a day, morning and before you snooze at night preferably!
Time To Hydrate
The best way to hydrate is by masking, masking & masking. The sun’s strong rays can have an adverse effect on your skin. Bollyglow’s anti-blemish sheet mask sinks right into the pores, deep cleanses and soothes troubled skin. It helps strengthen the natural skin barrier and reduces further damage caused by the sun. It helps control excess oil, reduces redness to give you a fresh and flawless look. Apart from this, the heat can drain you and your skin by the end of the day. Revive dull and tired skin with Bollyglow’s brightening sheet mask that helps plumps and smoothens skin, leaving it visibly fresher and younger. Just what you need. Get masking twice a week, no excuses.

Load Up On Vitamin C & Water, Ofcourse!
Your best friends this summer? Orange juice and water! Increase in temperature and too much exposure to the sun leads to internal dehydration which can make you feel tired and lethargic. Consume a lot of water and also up your intake of Vitamin C rich foods like oranges, lemon, amla, green leafy veggies etc to maintain strong and healthy skin.
Makeup For Summer
Since it’s humid outside, make sure that the makeup you use is smudge-proof. (Nobody likes a cakey look!) Keep a lip balm with SPF 15 handy and use it every time you step outside. Flaky lips is a big NO! NO!
Let this Summer be all about enjoying the outdoors to the fullest.
Have A Happy Summer!

Here are our favourite super easy hairstyles for monsoon:

Add volume to flat hair by backcombing the crown section and pinning it into a high puff. Weave the rest of the hair into a French braid and secure with bright coloured scrunchie.
